MU-COM Academic Hooding Participants

If you are an MU-COM graduate who will participate in the hooding portion of the Commencement Ceremony, you may wear your own personal regalia and are not required to rent regalia. If you need to rent regalia, do so online. More information can be found on the Graduation Regalia for Faculty, Staff, and Academic Hooding page. MU-COM graduates are required to rent or purchase Marian University graduation regalia.
